Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
TS Eliot’s “The Rock” posed this question in 1934. It frames ECG’s approach to its briefing series in 2021. We understand that one receives information but must acquire knowledge.
This distinction is proven day after day in the equity market. Corporations publish information, the market receives it. Yet it is only the interplay of trade and comment based on this information that facilitates the market’s knowledge. This process is more active now than at any time since 2009/10. Equity valuations are no longer benchmarks but subjects for debate.
Recognising this, ECG works with entrepreneurs and investors to acquire knowledge with which to create value. It has already hosted discussions of “The Future of..” crypto currencies and 5G in the last two months. Looking forward we are intent on similar events focused on sustainability, generation share, financial communications, women in tech, digital health, and many more. These events take a topical and relevant subject and then subject it to an analysis provided by a broad range of subject matter experts (SMEs).
In addition, we encourage actively audience participation, testing our panels and expanding our knowledge of the matter at hand. By so doing, we believe that our briefings allow our audience – entrepreneurs, corporations, investors – to bring information and acquire knowledge through discussion.
Our next event will take place on May 28th at 15h CET. It is part of a continuum, leading to our FTE Summit on October 1st to October 5th, 2021 in Mykonos. Our Summit will congregate our audience, bringing information, the sharing and the debate of which is dedicated to building knowledge and creating value.
